But as long as you have a few numbers you can manual calculate it!
Want to know how?
( if you have ANY questions please contact us)
The first thing you NEED to know is the SAP#or Saponification number which is needed to know how much lye to use to convert the oils / butters into soap. **Your vendor should be able to supply you with that information.
the Second thing you NEED to know is the weight of the oils you’ll be using.
These are our lifelines when it comes to soaping…..
**(if you are soaping & selling you should be writing!)
It’s the place where we write ALL of the important information down. I know you may be asking why?
Why would you have to have notebooks to soap?
It’s actually simple.
These notebooks contain everything that goes into a batch.
They contain the following:
1. the SOAP RECIPE that has been assigned a BATCH # -
(You should always assign a batch number so you’ll be able to track a soap back)
2. Type of color / colors that were used (brand & color)
3. Fragrance / essential Oils (brand & type)
4. Any extras such as seeds, lavender buds etc.
5. clays or salts
Anything that goes into that particular batch gets written down on that sheet of paper.
Which then goes into the notebook. Then when you label the soap it will make life so simple!
**It’s IMPORTANT to know what went into every batch. If you are soaping and selling and aren’t writing. It’s time to start a good practice and get yourself a notebook. Start documenting your next batch. Remember you’ll want to assign a Batch # to each batch and write everything that goes into that batch down.. Have a question? click here!
Anyway, We’ve had this batch of soap (Guinness)soap that has been around for a bit. Mainly because we had forgotten to add the fragrance. We sell a lot of beer soap but believe or not Men actually like that added scent. Who knew, right?
So, what we needed to do was re-batch the batch we had made. What’s re-batch? It’s the same as Hand-milled soap. You take soap that has already been made (Great for anyone that doesn’t want to work with Lye) and melt it. Then you can add fragrance and/or color of your choice. It’s wonderful way to make ALL Natural bars using essential oils.
For us it’s not our favorite way to make soap but it works especially when you forget something like fragrance! LoL
Since I take the pics by myself sometimes it’s hard to get just the right pictures that i was looking for…If you have ANY questions Please ask
